violent clashes erupt at morsi presidential palace in cairo

Egyptian anti-government protestors take cover behind burning dust bins during clashes with riot police following a demonstration against Egypt’s President in the northern coastal city of Alexandria on February 8, 2013.

Egyptian security forces have used water cannons to disperse anti-government demonstrators near the presidential palace in the capital, Cairo.

On Monday, Egyptian police reportedly clashed with stone-throwing protesters near President Mohamed Morsi’s palace where demonstrators chanted anti-Morsi slogans. 

Earlier in the day, members of opposition parties gathered near the capital’s Liberation Square where they called on President Morsi to fulfill his election promises. 

Reports say that demonstrators carried banners and signs reading “The revolution continues”

On February 8, thousands of Egyptian opposition protesters took to the streets to rally against Morsi after calls from nearly 40 opposition parties and groups for mass demos across the country on the “Friday of dignity.” 

In the second largest city of Alexandria, at least five people were injured in a similar outbreak of violence between angry protesters and police forces, who fired tear gas to disperse anti-government demonstrators. 

On January 25, at least 100 people were injured in mass rallies marking the second anniversary of Egypt’s revolution after clashes erupted between protesters and police in major cities. 

The opposition accuses Morsi of failing to meet his campaign promises and putting himself above the law. 

The Egyptians launched the revolution against the pro-Israeli regime on January 25, 2011, which eventually brought an end to Mubarak’s 30-year-long dictatorship on February 11, 2011…JA
